Since 1982, St. Jerome’s University has offered Lectures in Catholic Experience to our local community, providing opportunities for us to engage with the critical issues of our time. We have invited scholars, activists, experts, and religious leaders to address subjects in the areas of religion and politics, spirituality, health care, international relations and human rights, ecological responsibility, religious pluralism, ecumenism, interfaith dialogue, religion and the media, and others.
We are pleased to celebrate our 40th Anniversary during our 2022-2023 Lectures in Catholic Experience (LCE) series. Our in person format has returned, but we have moved all lectures to the Notre Dame Chapel on campus.
Guests are asked to register in advance to join us in the Notre Dame Chapel, located in SJ1, our classroom and library building. Please use the accessible main exterior pathways from our parking lots to join us. We are also pleased to continue to provide live stream access to our Lectures in Catholic Experience for those unable to attend in person. Please use the UPCOMING LECTURES link below for more information.
Interested in taking a journey back to our previous LCE lectures? Recordings are uploaded and are available using the PAST LECTURES link found below.
